What Taj hotels do well was well manifested in this hotel. As a cultural destination, the hotel did a good job creating an atmosphere that is as authentic as possible. Located in town center, the hotel was built in the traditional Bhutanese style. Compared to some Taj hotels in historical palaces in India, it may not as magnificent, but the... More

The Taj Tashi is a beautiful hotel in Thimpu. It resembles a palace on the outside and it just as nice inside. From the front you get a view of the giant buddha on the mountain in the distance. The hotel is close to many handicraft stalls around the corner. The rooms were beautiful in dark wood. It had a... More

Words simply can't describe the graciousness, warmth, charm, and elegance of the Taj. I had the opportunity to stay here while on a recent trip to Bhutan and I hope someday to come back. My room was so beautifully appointed that I simply didn't want to venture out of it. The furnishings, ambience, and amenities combined to offer a traveler... More

The hotel itself is beautiful from the outside. The staff was very nice and the food was excellent they had a large selection ranging from Bhutanese to general asian to standard western and all of it was superb. The rooms are huge and very nice. Overall a very pleasant experience they have wifi but it works sporadically.
